    Wow, Jef managed to be funny AND preachy on climate change at the same time!

    Right because the only time glaciers melt is under global warming.

    A bit sensitive on the subject are we?

    A scientist’s 1970 Earth Day prediction: “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” — Kenneth Watt

    A scientist’s 1970 Earth Day prediction: “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” — Ecologist Kenneth Watt

    A scientist’s 1970 Earth Day prediction: “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich

    There will always be individual scientists with alternate hypotheses (I hope), that is where new theories come from. Most of these “A scientist…” hypotheses fail to meet the test of time. When there is consensus, however, it is worth considering the repercussions.

    Boy were they dumb in 1970.

    Kenneth Watt is a zoologist. Citing his opinion on the atmosphere is like expecting a dermatologist to treat your brain tumor. Now, how about the vast majority of climatologists and meteorologists today who say that climate change is a major problem?

    Water from melting glaciers is typically as white as milk. It is full of rock dust, and can be quite harmful if you drink it.

    This is something I have never before seen in a comic!

    That’s a capital city river run t-shirt Mr. Burke is sporting. That means the capital of Michigan, which is Lansing. The race starts at Cooley Law School.

    Whatever you do, don’t go to Cooley Law School. It is the lowest ranked law school in the country. The reputation is that many graduates have trouble passing the bar exam. However, the school is big and churns out graduates like hotcakes.

    In other words, the buzz is that Cooley is a scam.

    A very few thought it might be cooling. That ended totally when it started warming and never stopped.
